Oh Dearie me - looks like SF Party Leadership have done it again Folks

- and shot themselves in the Foot!

For it seems all is not as it seems as the SF Big Wigs secretly do a deal with one of its own high ranking TDs to allow him to pocket all of his salary

- while making out its TDs only draw down the average Industrial Wage!

What a bunch of Hypocrites!:roll:

A SINN Féin TD struck a secret deal with the party that allows him to draw down his entire Dáil salary of more than €90,000, we can reveal.
Dublin North West deputy Dessie Ellis told party bosses that he could not afford to accept the average industrial wage, because doing so would push his family "below the poverty line".

Now is he the only one allowed this Special Category to dip his hand in the till

- or are they all at it under various 'excuses'

Jeepers they would delusional if they think they wont get slaughtered over this

Bye Bye Dessie....:D

But what they get is not even remotely near the average industrial wage - we are told that its a take home pay figure. If that is so the real gross figure is in excess of €70K.

On top of that they also have the very generous expenses and travel payments which are not taxable.

A manager at Aldi gets more. But then there is more responsibility and accountability working at Aldi than Dáildi.

It's his salary to do as he likes with it. The other Sinn Féin TDs should simply not hand over their salaries to SF HQ if they have a problem.

It may be that they do indeed have a problem upon hearing about Dessie's little arrangement if they were not informed of it. You could hardly blame them.

And it might not go down too well with voters either, given that Sinn Féin have been crowing about the self-sacrifice of their TDs for quite some time now.

To be fair, SF have always supported Special Category Status for IRA prisoners.

They made a virtue of their near poverty-status for years. Then, they do a secret deal with one TD.
Hypocrisy doesn't fully describe it.

He lives in a more expensive area so should get more. That's equality isn't it?

Are property prices in Finglas more expensive than Castleknock where Mary Lou lives? Are Cheerios dearer in Finglas than a United Ireland in Blanchardstown?
mary Lous husband is a big earner remember..........

this whole thing is smoke and daggers.......every td uses their post tax money to support their reelection bids.....FACT

I think the facts are misunderstood.......they draw down the full amount and then decide what to do with it.....just like everyone else

He's hardly 'dipping his hand in the till' if he's getting the same as most of the TD$ in the Dáil, especially the wealthy well connected ones who are 'entitled' to all that's coming their way.

The worse you can say about him is he's a greedy cünt just like varadkar and the rest :(

Didn't PSF drop the pretence about all their staff taking only the Average Industrialist's wage a while back?

PSF party finances would make fascinating study - not easy as spread over various jurisdictions. Don't they have property companies including one in that London? Interests in various pubs and building companies? I wonder if Marty Miller had any help in setting up his media empire - that now includes a big stake in Irish Central, that somehow missed the McElduff and Marty Miller Scandal - too busy running stories like the one yesterday about a woman legally marrying a 300 year old ghost......

Ever wonder how PIRA laundered their money?

And I thought the shinners were just good at managing their money....

How plebeian. Shinners, on the other hand, have more refined tastes. Saw Eoin O'Broin and Lynn Ní Bhaoighealláin in the Horseshoe Bar in the Shelbourne on Saturday night. Shows impressive financial acumen to stretch the average industrial wage to patronise an establishment that charges €6.30 for a point of porter and at least €10 for a G&T.
